Colnago Owners’ Day returns in 2019 with Le Col

The collaboration between Le Col and Colnago will continue into the third successive year with the announcement of the Colnago Owners’ Day 2019.

Taking place at Chavenage House near Tetbury in Gloucestershire, 18th August will see the premium British cycling clothing brand and the Italian bike manufacturer offer “a day to remember for fans of arguably the most beautiful bicycles of all time.”

Attendees will have the chance to peruse some Colnago bikes from the past 65 years and gain an exclusive run-through of the upcoming 2020 Colnago range.

There will be a 40-mile ride through the English countryside and a champagne lunch followed by a Q&A from pro riders and Colnago’s brand ambassadors.

“We’re looking forward to another fantastic Colnago Owners’ day at Chavenage House this year and sharing our latest range and spending time with our Colnago friends and family,” said Colnago’s Mauro Mondonico.

Tickets, which are priced at £150, include a limited edition Le Col x Colnago jersey and complimentary food and drink throughout the day.

Le Col founder Yanto Barker said: “Colnago is so much more than a bike manufacturer – it’s written itself into cycling history. From handcrafted steel through to elegantly lugged carbon, Colnagos have always been made, built and ridden with incomparable spirit and flare.

“The Colnago Owners’ day is a chance to celebrate and get up close with these artisanal bikes, and to glimpse where these masters builders will lead the pack next. Following the success of last year’s event, I’m excited once again to offer Colnago enthusiasts a homage to cycling’s most respected name.”

Tickets are available here. There are also non-rider tickets available for adults and children for £30.
